What are F1 Hybrids?

Seed can be either ‘Open Pollinated’ or a ‘F1 Hybrid’. Open pollinated seed is naturally pollinated and genetically diverse. F1 hybrids are deliberately created by crossing two different parent varieties to produce a seed which has particular characteristics.

Garden Organic’s Principles of Organic Gardening allow the use of F1 hybrids only when there are no other alternatives available to the grower. On these rare occasions, an organic F1 hybrid is preferred but, if unavailable, a non-organic F1 hybrid can be used.

If you’re growing to save seed, Garden Organic recommends choosing an Open Pollinated variety. F1 Hybrids are less likely to produce seed ‘true to type’ or hold the same characteristics as the plant you saved it from.

Growing Information

Crops 12 weeks from sowing. Sow seed singly on edge in 9cm pots under glass at 18–21°C (65–70°F) February-May for greenhouse crops or April-May for outdoors. Later pot on plants into large pots, about 25cm in size, or plant them out in a frame/greenhouse or outdoors. (Do not plant in cold frames until May.) Maintain night temperatures of 16–18°C (60–65°F). For standard greenhouse varieties, remove male flowers leaving the female ones (distinguished by swelling on stem behind petals). For standard outdoor varieties leave on both male and female flowers. 'All female' varieties produce virtually 100% female flowers which means they will not set fruit without insects for pollination. Harvest July-September.
